The Local Natives hail from the City of Angels & have the folksy, hyperactive drumming, percussion & melodic hooks i absolutely cannot get enough of.
This particular video completely drew me in, it beckons your attention. The performance was completed in one ongoing shot in a convoluted corridor. I think it's brilliant, they're a bit Arcade Fire mixed with the Clash. Their website is an absolute cluster fuck of imagery - beautiful in it's own acid tripped way. What's even sweeter... their fourteen track album, Gorilla Manor is a mere $7.99 on iTunes... which is almost like stealing (that is, if you don't already steal your music).
I put together a seven song sampler, it should go down something like seven minutes in heaven... except less awkward, lengthier & possibly more enjoyable overall ♥
